Para-Dressage Rider: European Individual & Team Gold medalist 2017-Sweden.
In 2012, Suzanna's life changed in a split second when a youngster reared over and landed on her twice, crushing her underneath. She had 9 operations and spent over half a year in hospital.
"At the time, the London 2012 Olympics were taking place, I remember watching them from my hospital bed and felt so inspired. It was a huge driving force for me."
Two years later she got back in the saddle before moving to Gloucestershire to spend time and focus on her riding at The Talland School of Equitation. Her results speak for themselves, and she's an inspiration with a goal in mind. Pegasus is delighted to be supporting her on the journey to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

"Having 2 years left in Young Riders, in 2018 I hope to be reselected for the GB team, whilst also consolidating my top horses at 3*, move up to CCI3* and aim to gain qualifications towards 4*. In the long term I have my sights firmly set on a Senior GB team place and moving up to 4*, and continuing to produce a string of lovely horses up the ranks."
